The options I know about are:
- GhostScript commes with a tool named "ps2pdf" to convert PostScript to PDF
- OpenOffice.org has a PDF creator included
- pdfTeX (also for LaTeX)

The tool "ps2pdf" can also be used for creating PDF/X-3 and PDF/A,
but it's not that easy:

By the way, ps2pdf can not only read PostScript files, but you can also use 
it to reencode existing PDF files.
